%. president obama's pathway to re-election is difficult even with the latino and african voters across the country. why is president obama 36% among white voters and what can he do to up that number? >> i think that he needs to focus on job creation and lay out what he did to save the country from the great depression. certainly emphasize on what he did to stave the automobile industry. that's what is holding blue cole sxar white voters in the state of ohio. i have to tell you this, luke. only in mitt romney's mind is a path where he sits at 206 electoral votes right now and the president sits at 246, more favorable position to be in. we have got to get to 270. that's the part of the campaign we are in right now. any normal person would prefer to be in a posture where even according to nbc we are at about 246 right now. we are ahead in ohio. we are very strong in virginia. where we have a great cincinnati candidate in tim kaine and will win nevada. the only thing the folks in romneyville are doing is they are moving forward with a confidence gain. they are walking around talking about
people, latinos, african-american, the president has to talk about his record, talk about things he has done, show that he understands their issues and their concerns. be it unemployment, student loans, whatever. or immigration. and then he has to talk about what he has done, what he'll do in the next four years and contrast that with mitt romney's stance. for latinos, for example, i think latinos would be interested to hear the president's version of the dream act he implemented, which is an important issue, versus mitt romney's policy of self-deportation. >> of 11 million people. >> that's a ludicrous claim he's going to do it. it's an insult. anyway, president obama swamps mitt romney among young voters, 18 to 34 age group but they're less enthusiastic this time around. now 52% of young voters call themselves extremely interested in the electric. back in 2008 that number was 20 points higher. and in an effort to fire up young voters, the president has been on a college tour of u.s. campuses. this last week he was at ohio state. let's listen. >> grab your friends, grab everybody in yo
. the president has been able to stay even with romney by winning big margins with latino voters and leads among them, 63/34 in colorado and winning ready for this with latino voters in neve day by 74/23. anyway the race for colorado tighteninged. why has it become such a close race? romney has gained among key groups since we last polled a month ago by 14 points a month ago, 54/40. it's been cut in half and the president only leads by 7 points. now, the president led independents, 50-39. now, that 11-point margin is a virtual draw and romney is up a point among independents. leader of the marist poll joins me now. colorado, we sit here, we talk about ohio, lee, we talk about -- but colorado, tell me this, what was the raw vote difference between the two because obviously statistically 48/48, a total tie? >> single digits. one handful. i think what's interesting, we talked about ohio throughout the campaign as being the bellwether, but, you know, obama is sort of getting in ohio what he got last time. and that may be because of the car industry and the whole auto bailout. around the rest of the
and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a whole has become more hispan hispanic. colorado is 18% latino. that's up from 11.8% in 2000. the question is whether they cast ballots this time around. so how do voters in denver's swing suburbs known for being independen

to the number. hispanic and latino unemployment. quickly, if you look the at the graphic from 2008 to 2012 and you look at the difference here and the numbers as they're adding up. you're talking about 10% overall unemployment according to bls, in september of 2012. that's not sitting well in the hispanic community and the talk today to the executive director of the hispanic leadership network. >> hispanics are looking at the unemployment rate which has been stuck at 10% and above for the last 44 months, and saying, mr. president, where are the jobs? you campaigned heavily in 2008 to bring jobs back to the hispanic community and they're not there. >> bret: break down this thing into these sections, into numbers that are not great. >> that's right, and look, i think the romney campaign has a sense that it's making progress in its argument among hispanic voters and i would not at all be surprised to see an even more concerted push for the romney campaign to make precisely that argument on unemployment, on jobs, with the hispanic community in particular. >> bret: okay, next up, the friday lig
-american vote for barack obama, 0% for romney. but the latino vote is crucial on the strategy you mentioned of nevada. look how many times the president's gone to nevada. he even prepped for the denver debate in nevada. little picked up on the press, but he went to cesar chavez's burial site up in the mountains of california. and with ken salazar, a great latino representative of colorado, his interior secretary, they saved all of la paz, cesar chavez, the great labor organizer's home in person tuity by the federal government, now a federal government. that played well in hispanic newspapers around the country because chavez is the martin luther king in many ways for latinos. so you see the president's 70% or more with latinos, and it could make a difference just in nevada alone being able to pick that up. >> you spent time with our president. and obviously, it's a great piece. what did you see in his eyes? what are we not feeling? did you see a guy empowered? nervous? just as guy to guy, you sitting there, walk away. >> he's unflappable. and he's ready to roll. i asked him about denver, wh

latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole
-americans and on latinos. that's why we're winning. we're fighting back and winning. >> bill clinton, who is very good at making things simple, as we know, he's done it again this summer. he said this was the most blatant example of voter suppression where he said they're shutting down sunday before voting because that's when black people go to church and go on the buses because they don't have cars. you're the expert. what does this mean to you historically that this has been stopped at least in pennsylvania? >> this is big. this means all voters in pennsylvania can go vote. if you've got an i.d., you can vote. if you don't got one, you can vote. that's critical right now because as you heard turzai say, they were trying to steal the race in the state and, given what this state is, steal it for the entire country. but what this also is sort of in line with is that we're starting to turn the tide. you know, we've won in wisconsin. we've won in texas. we've got a republican governor in the midwest, snyder, to actually veto one of these bills. we got governor mcdonald in virginia, also from the gop, to
in this election than republican constituencies than key ones. seniors versus voters, whether it's latinos, there has been this issue. so, has that been the strategy, trying to buck up the base? >> let me say a few things. first, national polls, the president has always done worse. >> i buy there is a split between those two. >> the president has generally done better in swing states because of the amount of resources. so, i don't think we should democratic panic, should not occur because of that and i think we could feel pretty positive. even with an even national poll, president's taken a hard hit and i think he's ahead in swing states still. on this issue of energy and enthusiasm, i think there was a challenge for the president the month before the election, the debate, that people thought the campaign was over and you were seeing people not as energized now. now, i wouldn't have had that debate performance to get them energized, but i think -- >> that is some interesting lemonade you're making over there. is there any sugar in it at all? >> i think as tight election, you'll see people
of numbers that it's altering that chemistry. latinos and african-american voters are staying in more than we've seen, and i think that's sort of counterbalancing the others. we're not seeing a big difference in all these states between registered and likely, especially not in ohio. that's a special case with 18% having already voted. as you said, 63% for obama. huge difference in the campaign affecting the chemistry of ohio. >> and very quickly, i want to do one other number that i want to bring up. who's better able to handle the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in th
think the latino vote is going to come out strong. >> enthusiasm issue. is it going to catch up? a problem for obama? >> if anything, it's the door to door knocking we're seeing that people are saying, oh, you actually care. >> do you believe nevada demographically impossible for romney to win? >> demographically impossible for him to win. >> that's what i keep hearing. >> i will go with truly shameless and say my mother's birthday is tomorrow. happy birthday. i'm her won and only son. if i forgot, i'd be in real trouble. >> happy birthday to mary elle listen elizabeth. a good friend of mine major tom kennedy was killed in afghanistan by a suicide bomber. we set up a charity. it's called kennedy's angels. we've raised over $400,000. it's a great cause. >> okay. thank you to our shortened panel here. tomorrow on the show, we're going to have the brand new battleground polls for you. the midwestern test. coming up next, chris jansing. bye-bye. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. the giants don't have a mascot! ohhh! eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chick

not to be believed it's so big. this was a group that everyone had written up. latinos and women, mitt romney, mitt romney has no chance to get those. he closed 18 points in one debate. i'd be surprised. that's a huge leap. >> i never thought it was like 10 or 11 points, i don't think it's tied now either. i think it's maybe four or five. again, looking at all the polls. i think this may be an outlier on the women. i think you're right. >> there were a couple of other quick things in that poll. first of all, on the michigan, that's remarkable because a month ago, mitt romney, crossroads, everybody else pulled out of michigan. there were no ads running there. if he closed the gap like that, he did it on his own. also 78% of independents in that pew survey thought mitt romney won the debate. and then the enthusiasm for mitt romney, a campaign that a lot of people said, joe you know, and inside republican circles, this is a loser, we're moving on to 2016. now 67% of republicans say they're enthusiastic about their candidate, that's up 15 points from the last survey. >> mika, you brought this up this w

factors. let's whip through some of them beginning with latino enthusiasm in colorado. >> yeah, this is a place that the president thought he would have a big advantage, but now is struggling. he is hoping to make up what he's lost with white women, with white men with latinos, he had that amazing line in the interview for "the des moines register" endorsement that you were just talking about where he said to the editors, not knowing at the time that it was going to be released. since we're talking off the reco record, the reason that i'm going to win is hispanics. he's been doing a lot better with them in nevada, though, than he is in colorado. another hidden factor is governor scott walker's turnout operation in wisconsin. this is the flip side of what the president has working for him in nevada. in nevada because of harry reid, they know every last democrat. in wisconsin, because of scott walker, they know every last republican. another big "x" factor, barnicle was talking about the storm as the ultimate wild card. here's one of the reasons that it could really be disruptive
tonight. you've got to focus on women in ohio, latinos particularly in colorado. i'm like joe. if i saw those numbers two weeks out -- >> you'd be surprised. >> you'd be scared to death. >> andrea. >> a couple things. turnout, turnout and turnout. in talking to the democratic operatives, they think they've got a better machine in different states. you're going to see joe biden and barack obama together in dayton tomorrow. they're counting on big rallies like the madison, wisconsin, rally to try to generate more excitement and what they do is more registration, more voting, off-site voting at these campus rallies. the students are a big, big thing for them. and getting to what richard haass and the council on foreign relations did with their study that condi rice co-chaired, economic security and national security issue, that is almost a better argument for mitt romney tonight, harold. i think both candidates will try to make that argument, but mitt romney might be able to articulate that argument better than barack obama. >> and mika, following up on what andrea said, if we wake up the
think if you look particularly at two groups for the president, latinos and you look at young voters, particularly the hispanics, he's getting 70% in our poll. but they're down by 12 points as far as enthusiasm. so the net effect is the same. so he's getting the same amount of hispanic help this time as he got four years ago. if he wants to truly take advantage of that, he's got to get hispanics more fired up. >> chuck, it's sam. two questions for you. one is, why is ohio not, in your estimation, a lean obama state at this juncture in all the polling news? and secondly, in what states with early voting do you think another candidate's going to actually have a real advantage and get out to a lead that might be insurmountable on election day? >> reporter: well, i'm not sure that -- i'm not sure we would talk about ohio. i mean, i sort of -- let's see if anything moves after the first debate. i think this is going to be an interesting question for the romney campaign in a week. if the ohio numbers don't move, there is a strong case to be made. joe, you and i walked through this path, th
